Surfing

Soul and Surf Sri Lanka is perfect for learners and improvers to develop your surfing skills. Your surfing package will include 5 surfing lessons from Sunday to Friday with a rest day on Wednesday plus sunset surfing sessions for you to practice and develop your skills. You will have a surfing theory lesson and video correction feedback session to make sure that you develop and progress throughout the week depending on your experience, your ambition, and your natural ability. As a basic requirement to attend the lessons, you must be able to swim.

Soul and Surf has internationally qualified surfing instructors and beach lifeguards dedicated to facilitating your improvement. They keep the instructor-to-pupil-ratio high in order to give you individual attention and make the week lesson plans to each student's requirements. Soul and Surf provides you with basic knowledge that you need to keep in mind as follows:

  • Safety rules
  • Stretching before and after surfing lessons incorporating simple yoga
  • Paddling, prone, and pop-up techniques in broken waves (white water)
  • Paddling out to the line-up
  • Position in the line-up to catch unbroken waves (green wave)
  • Taking off and riding the green wave left
  • Gaining the knowledge and ability to assess your surfing ability

Yoga

You will have 5 days of afternoon yoga sessions from Sunday to Friday, except on Wednesday. However, if you will choose not to surf, you can have 2 days of yoga sessions in the morning. If you are a seasoned yogi, you will have the chance to go deep and really focus on your yoga practice with the experienced teacher as your guide.

Pranayama

Pranayama (breathing exercises) will sort out your minds. During the pranayama session, you will be guided through specific breathing exercises to channel your “prana” or life force by bringing awareness to the breath. This technique can increase your lung capacity. Through these exercises, your mind will be rejuvenated, stilled, and uplifted.

Meditation

Meditation will help you calm and still the mind from today’s incessant deadlines and pressures. Even though the activity is sometimes thought to be boring or difficult, this meditation session will guide you through accessible techniques to make you calm, organize your thoughts, and help explore a mindful approach to your day. With the help of sound, light, and sometimes even movement, the techniques are designed to make calm your senses.
